Perstorp Group appoints Ulf Berghult as CFO


Ulf Berghult has been appointed as CFO at Perstorp Holding AB as of mid-February.

Ulf is a senior executive with a very solid background and most recently he comes from the position as CFO at Trelleborg, a position he has held since 2012.

Previous experience includes similar positions at companies like Thule Group, Dometic and Oriflame.

“I am excited to join Perstorp, which is a successful company with a long history and leading market positions in the specialty chemicals industry.

"I have been impressed by the professional and open spirit I have met and I look very much forward to be part of the team and contribute with my experience,” says Ulf Berghult.

“It is very important that we can secure continuity in the CFO office, especially in these uncertain times," says Jan Secher, President & CEO at Perstorp.

"I am therefore, very pleased to welcome Ulf Berghult with his vast experience, to join us during this period.

"Ulf has relevant industrial experience and a proven track record of successfully having managed businesses in various stages, ownership and level of complexity.

"He will bring valuable and fresh perspectives from his previous positions.”

Johan Ryrberg, who has temporarily held the CFO position after Magnus Heimburg left to become CEO at Preem, will secure continuity at the CFO office until Ulf Berghult is in place.

Ulf holds a BSc in Business Administration from Lund University, Sweden and will be based at Perstorp’s head office in Malmö.
